        The test is if we willingly give in to our sinful nature, not if we're capable of sin. Obviously we're all capable. But we're also capable of not giving in.

          why do we need to be tested? If god created us and gave us that capability then he must know that at least some of us are going to sin

            The test is not for God to know. He already knows. The test is so that we can earn the reward of heaven. God's gifts aren't cheap. They have to be earned.

            why do they have to be earned?
            If I have to do things that I do not want to do (like spreading blood of sacrificed animals around the 4 corners of the temple) or otherwise I will be tortured for eternity than what does that make us? Slaves or hostages or abused victims? Also if God wants me to do something, why doesnt he just tell me directly?

            >why do they have to be earned?
            Because the virtuous are worthy of heaven, and the vicious are not. To send people to a place they do not deserve is unjust, and God is a just God.
            >otherwise I will be tortured for eternity than what does that make us? Slaves or hostages or abused victims?
            Do you feel like a hostage right now? The truth is that only extremely religious people feel like they have no choice in the matter. The vast majority of people are free to choose one way or the other. That's why God doesn't reveal his presence and end all doubts of His existence. Then we'll all be keeping commandments robotically, not out of free will.
            >why doesnt he just tell me directly?

            It's a bit more than 7 laws (more like 7 categories of laws), but it's not too much to handle. The important thing is to constantly improve yourself and be more virtuous.

            Why do you want to go to hell by denying Allah? God is just by punishing those who do not obey him if I undestand you correctly.

            God and Allah are the same God, but He did not give the Quran. It is incumbent on a person to believe in one God and to search for the truth, but if he does not find it through no fault of his own, he will not be punished.

    This isn't tempting someone to sin, though. That's the distinction.

    Abraham didn't believe that he was going to murder his son; instead, Abraham was faithful that God would provide a substitute. Abraham likely believed that even if he were to plunge the knife into his son's chest, God would still provide a substitute for him.

    The substitute was Christ, of course, which is what the story represents.

      Do you have any reason to back this up?
      If this were true then he would be lying to his son. And very convincingly because he's described as very upset about this. Who is he putting on a show for?

        Wut? Abraham literally tells his son that God will provide a lamb for the sacrifice.

        7 And Isaac spake unto Abraham his father, and said, My father: and he said, Here am I, my son. And he said, Behold the fire and the wood: but where is the lamb for a burnt offering?
        8 And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.
        Genesis 22:7-8

        Of course, God provided a goat. But on the same hill, over a thousand years later, Jesus Christ would be offered as the perfect lamb for the sins of the world.
